Question about RCA B27TF680 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

No VCR/DVD Picture or sound

This set was accidentally unplugged when in operation. Now, although the info shows a VCR/DVD playing (you can hear the tape moving and the time on screen is advancing), there is no video or audio. Screen is black except for the information. Have tried all settings of input, but none work.

    The TV/VCR/DVD combination was not dropped, and the playback options are PAL. SInce it is a combination unit, the components are all in one package, so the A/V leads are not a problem. Thanks for the help, though.

Your unit may have been switched to Progressive Scan mode, which a normal analogue TV can't recognise. Check your VCR/DVD manual for instructions to change picture settings and set it back to PAL TV.
Failing that try a new 3 conductor lead from unit to TV.  Also unless you yourself were actually the one who accidentally unplugged the unit, it is just possible that whoever did has not (for whatever reason)disclosed to you the full detail of what actually happened to cause it to fail. If it was in fact dropped or fell, pulling on the AV leads they could have been rendered useless or the unit itself might have suffered a Gforce-shock causing component failure or circuit board fracture.
All the best with this one
